Leasing of the Federal minerals in Sierra, Otero, and Doña Ana Counties are and will be deferred until a Record of Decision (ROD) for the TriCounty Resource Management Plan (RMP) is signed. The Federal Register Notice of Intent published December 19, 2013, initiated a deferment of all fluid mineral lease sales in the entire planning area until a ROD for the TriCounty RMP/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is obtained. The deferment of all fluid mineral leasing preserves the BLM’s ability to analyze a range of alternatives, including analysis of a No Leasing alternative.
